How to Grow Tree Peonies
Peonies are graceful and beautiful plants to have in a garden. They come in tree-peony varieties and herbaceous varieties. It can be a lot of fun mixing up the varieties in the same garden. Tree peonies are sort of the "upper class" of the peony world. The flower you see comes from a young peony plant being grafted on to an older mature plant. They take several years to "take" and they are priced accordingly. Tree peonies are a little touchier about their space and can get quite large. The vary in price from around up to thousands, depending on the variety, where it was cultivated. The really good ones come from Japan and are normally "collector" types, very rare varieties.

- Trim to the ground in autumn.
